I have two collection agencies on my report trying to collect on debts from 2007.
If new companies keep acquiring the debt, how will it ever get off my report?

it's going to get off the report once it's fully paid off or if you want to let it expire by itself. I believe will take a few years which will hurt your credit.

The date that matters is the date of delinquency from the original creditor.  If that date is older than 7 years, you can dispute it and have it removed.  Just need to prove the date of last payment made and that date is greater than 7 years old.
